Invisalign: Straighter Teeth Without the Hassle
When your smile is less than perfect, the last thing you want is to draw attention to it with metal braces. Is there a way to straighten yourteeth without the use of metal braces? Yes, there is a practically invisible way to a healthy, well-aligned set of teeth. It’s called Invisalign, and your dentists in Cordova, TN, Dr. William Smith, Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Steven Hennessy, can determine if you can receive smile correction with these innovative clear appliances.
How Invisalign Works
People from all over the world have used these invisible aligners made from Invisalign’s own proprietary plastic. Customized in smooth, well-fitting pairs, Invisalign aligners gradually move teeth into positions that are healthy, better functioning and more attractive.
Numbering 18 to 30 pairs in all, the aligners are worn 20 to 22 hours daily and changed out every two weeks or so. They may be removed to eat, brush and floss and for important events such as weddings, public speaking or family portraits.
The Invisalign system corrects many mild to moderate orthodontic conditions such as:
- Under bite
- Cross bite
- Open bite
- Tooth rotation and tooth tipping
- Need for orthodontic retreatment (teeth may drift after braces are removed)
While complicated alignment issues are best treated with traditional braces, the Invisalign system is still versatile and effective.
The Invisalign evaluation
At Dental Cares, your Cordova dentist will examine your teeth and gums and take digital X-rays and photos. With other detailed instructions, Dr. Smith, Dr. Ross or Dr. Hennessy sends the customized care plan to the Invisalign lab. Shortly thereafter, you will begin treatment with your special aligners.
The advantages of Invisalign
Frankly, treatment with Invisalign clear aligners is very predictable. In fact, your dentist in Cordova can show you how your teeth will appear at each stage of your treatment.
Also, patients enjoy quicker treatment times–typically a year or so. This is much shorter than conventional braces which usually take two to two and a half years or more. Plus, new smiles stay in place when patients wear customized retainers.
The ease and comfort of Invisalign aligners may be just what you need to achieve a great smile without a lot of hassle. Why not contact Dental Cares in Cordova, TN, today to arrange a consultation with our professional team? Call 901-881-8725901-881-8725.
